As the title says looking for pics of the RC 1" leveling kit with 265/65/17's. Only wanting to do the 1" since my front end is only 1.25-1.5" lower than the rear depending on how much fuel is in the tank and I would like to leave a slight rake to the truck.

Top is before the level, bottom is with 1". The garage I went to said that if you put the full 2"Rough Country level, the front would be higher than the rear. I think an inch and a quarter would be perfect. One inch would make it look exactly like you want, with the front end being ever so slightly lower depending on the angle.

I am a firm believer in 2 inch front and 1 inch rear block. In your case it would work perfect and give you a slight rake at about 0.50 inches.

Yeah they would be correct at least on my truck. I measured from the ground to the frame not wheel well arches. Have you noticed much of a decrease in gas mileage since the slight level?

Nope no change. It also didnt require a new alignment cause it really didnt change any angles.They showed me the readout from the computer and it was the same.

Great to read. I have been looking all over trying to find reference to MPG changes with leveling kits, as I spend a lot of time on the highway a loss of range would be a deal breaker for me, I don't care for the extreme rake, but not bad enough to warrant a drop in efficiency. Your post was all I needed to pull the trigger on the RC 1" kit.
